Demi Lovato, American pop / rock singer is now serious for workouts. After becoming the judge of “The X Factor”, she may be feeling uncomfortable with her other co-judges, especially Britney Spears, the only female co-judge. She has gained considerable weight. For this reason and to match the fitness level of others, she has hired a personal trainer, Joey Rubino.
The 5 ft 3½ inch star has been seen many times spending hours on workout. Recently, she spent her most time of Saturday in tough workout. But, the 20 year old singer says she exercises for her mental balance. In the August 2012 issue of SELF magazine, she said “I workout 5 to 6 days a week for my peace of mind, not to lose weight”. She further said that she runs for a few miles or sometime bikes from Santa Monica to Marina del Rey in California. Besides these, she also loves to do boxing and yoga.
